Leechpool Primary School is a large, friendly, vibrant school for children from 4 to 11 years old, situated in north east Horsham. There are two classes in each year group, with no class having more than 30 pupils. We are fully inclusive and every child really does matter to us. We recognise the individuality of every child and endeavour to meet their needs in a caring way, always challenging and supporting them to take the next steps in their learning.
We value a partnership approach and all members of the Leechpool team: pupils, parents/carers, staff and governors have high expectations of each other. We share the important values of working hard and trying hard, so that the very best standards are achieved across the school.
We are fortunate in having a large, attractive school site. This includes a Well-Being Walk, running around the perimeter of our field and a newly created outdoor classroom, which is used in all weathers. Our pupils' views matter to us, they are responsible for making decisions about exactly what their learning environment looks like throughout the school.
Dragons are a feature of our school - they appear everywhere! Every child belongs to one of four Dragon Teams: red, yellow, green or blue, which compete against one another to achieve the most Dragon Tokens each week. These are awarded for learning, making good behaviour choices, kindness, helpfulness and for trying hard and listening well.
Together, in a shared partnership with pupils, parents/carers, governors and the local community, we
....'breathe life into learning'
for our youngsters, so that their school days at Leechpool Primary are happy, memorable and successful - creating the very best springboard for life.
